Rated 5 of 5 stars
Robert Crais writes a book that has everything I could ever wish for in a story. I cried. I laughed. I was on the edge of my seat. Any story that uplifts military working dogs…well, it’s an instant tear jerker. The story starts off with the readers meeting Maggie and her handler, Pete. Spoken through the eyes of Maggie, the story takes on an upbeat approach and the reader feels an instant connection to this bomb sniffing German Shepherd. A tragedy occurs and life for Maggie changes in an instant.
In a separate story, we meet Scott, a police officer on patrol with his partner. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time leads to horrible consequences.
Soon, Maggie and Scott meet and while we both know what they went through separately…their relationship of distrust, pain and isolation keeps them from truly forging a bond. Over time, they learn each other and in the midst of this, Scott regains his ability to be a cop again. The first thing he wants to do is find the men who shot him and changed his world. With Maggie by his side and her amazing ability to sniff out trouble…Scott finds himself in a world of trouble and doesn’t know who he can trust other than Maggie.
This story soared high and made me ride the wave of enthusiasm until the very end. The way the book is written really helps readers identify with the characters, even Maggie. I’m definitely on board for more Scott and Maggie stories masterfully written by Crais.
